Thank you all so much! You have no idea how much your opinions helped nudge me in the right direction.
mariesmist~I love the Roxanne too! That bag has been a favorite long before I owned it.
Fayden~My picture expertise I owe to you! But...what is lovely? LOL
Greenie~ Thanks! My 6 year old picked it up tonight. His comment, it's really heavy! It really isn't, but it is made with awesome leather, so that without any hardware, it has substance to it.
Inky Paws~I agree with what you are saying about the distressed leather. But...this bag's color (and one other I bought so I could compare ) look super worn, brand new. I'm not into that for me. ush:
Pursegalsf, Munchkyn, Noriko, addicted, MissV~ Thank you all!
missola and Tammy518~ I'll tell you, it was a killer deal on the Chiara. $375 on sale, plus 20% off at LunaBoston. The Claudia is on sale for $425 I think, regular prices are $525 and $595. It's a damn shame it didn't work for me.
Loganz~ Perfect description! Dijon mustard wash!
amanda~I am glad that you like the first one. I really love it too. After I ordered the Chiara, and then again when I ordered the Sienna, I told myself that I was going to take the weaved one back. And then I pull it out of it's sleeper....and I can't. :cry:
